A Research Leader

HCCN has long been a leader in advancing research on the integration of spiritual care within health care.

HCCN holds an annual Caring for the Human Spirit® conference, focusing on the integration of spiritual care in health care. This go-to conference features top experts and draws an international audience of chaplains, researchers, nurses, social workers and other disciplines. The first Caring for the Human Spirit® conference (March 31-April 3, 2014) released the largest body of research on spiritual care in health care, presented the first empirical data on the role and effectiveness of chaplaincy care interventions, and launched the new field of interdisciplinary research in spiritual care in health care that would drive the research agenda for years to come.
